Every garden is home to a host of life. Unfortunately, some of these six- and eight-legged

pests in your garden using a sustainable "toolbox" approach. Focus on integrated pest
management techniques as well as the identification of both harmful and beneficial organisms.
Go home knowing how to control pests in your garden using safe, wildlife-friendly practices.
Bring a lunch and be prepared to walk outdoors.
